The best known icons of early Christianity in Ireland, and one of the best representations from medieval Ireland, is the Celtic cross. Early Celtic crosses were often found at churchyards and are self-contained monuments that were generally sculptured form sandstone, some standing as tall as twenty feet. Many Celtic crosses, such as the Cross of Scriptures at Clonmacnoise and the 16th century Celtic Cross at Monasterboice, featured ornate figure carving, but the chief characteristic feature is the circle connecting the arms.
We are glad that you found this page as you might have thought that we would have placed our Celtic cross necklaces and jewelry in our Celtic Jewelry section of our site, but we just have so many selections in several different categories, such as the silver Celtic cross necklaces and the Celtic cross necklaces for men sections, and we wanted to balance out our gifts accordingly.
In any case we are delighted that you found this section of The Irish Gift House and we hope that all our sections provide you with easy navigation. We trust that you were able to find the Celtic wall crosses and the standing Celtic crosses in this section and that you didn't get lost in the Irish Gifts category searching for them.

That being said, we should point out that the necklace and charm St. Brigid's crosses can be found under the Irish Jewelry category.
